    In discussion with David Kossoff at the USSR Trade Mission is an uncredited Bernard Rebel



    And not the greatest shot, but the guard manhandling Bob back to his seat is Manny Michael



    The commander of the firing squad is Peter Taylor, playing a Russian instead of a German for once

    And finally, the various uncredited reporters at the end are (L-R): Abraham Asseo, Michael Rittermann, Auric Lorand, Alex Gallier and Yah Ming



    The American and British reporters naturally get a closer shot, and they are Marvin Kane and Peter Fontaine. A credited Alexis Chesnakov in the background.

    Waiting on Alan Gifford, Alexander Gauge and Paul Carpenter at The Russian Bear is the very Slavic Dervis Ward

    Not John Wilder, Dave, but is that (a smiling??!!) George Holdcroft as the diner at the back (just above Paul Carpenter's head)?

    Indeed, Dave, but I'm not convinced myself that it is Billy. And other shots do show the chap above Eden Fox is not Frank Gatliff's cousin - he's too chubby!

    Here's another one I missed earlier:

    I suppose inevitably at the ringside, second left, former boxer Jim Brady. The other Jim (Tyson) is at the far end. No sign though of Ernie Rice, which is a bit surprising.

    In Dunkirk (1958), there's a big evacuation of uncredited performers to cope with:

    At this press meeting, Bernard Lee is asking the questions and John Serret with crossed legs and John Wilder (partially hidden on the right) are noting down the answers. Front at the right is Michael Shillo

    The pub is never that far away for Bernie and here's his missus Maxine Audley and Richard Attenborough with John Warwick as Alfred, the landlord. A tense moment with Victor Maddern is shortly to occur

    When John Mills and co. encounter French refugees, could the chap in the beret be John Lynn?

    Naval H.Q. and Oscar Quitak perhaps as the radio operator?

    The top brass here include Commander Arnold Bell plus Vice Admiral Nicholas Hannen and Captain Peter Williams

    Time to requisition boats and the skipper on the right here looks mightily like Desmond Llewelyn

    He is in this film and so I suspect the German soldier down on the farm here is Reg Thomason

    Eddie Byrne is enlisting the help of the small boat owners, who here include John Miller, John Phillips, Philip Ray and Frederick Piper

    The police get their nose in courtesy of Arnold Diamond's sizeable conk.

    Another chap with a big hooter, but he doesn't need to announce it: Howard Lang as a chief petty officer

    More small boat owners. Frederick Piper again, this time with Joss Ambler and Keith Pyott

    When Dickie and Bernie sign in with Michael Gwynn, the figure of Jim Tyson looms large on the right. Sean Barrett is the youngster

    I think the beaming German soldier in the centre here is an unusually cheerful Gertan Klauber. It may be Reg Thomason again on the left

    The sergeant in the middle is Ian McNaughton, and also we have Michael Bates at the wheel as well as Robert Urquhart and John Mills

    On the beach and top left seems to be Manny Michael

    In the sea and the helmetless soldier looking round is Charlie Price. I think Charlie may also play a sailor earlier on in the film

    This time the helmetless one near the back is Harold Coyne. His lieutenant is Tim Turner and his sergeant Barry Lowe

    This ship's officer is Howard Pays

    His C.P.O. looks a bit like William Hartnell, but is in fact Russell Waters

    And this officer, not very clear I know, but his voice confirms it, is Glyn Houston.

    Once on board, the (temporarily) relieved soldier facing front is Joe Wadham. On the bridge, captain Michael Brennan

    The gaunt-looking soldier gazing down must be Anthony Lang

    The sea shall not have them? Top pic, Aidan Harrington I think, bottom pic Joe Powell

    In the centre looking round, tommy Ernie Rice. Tim Turner and Barry Lowe are making a splash

    Beached again, Michael Bates and pals, with Christopher Rhodes on top of the dunes and Arthur Howell looking down from them

    At services, Peter Perkins looks towards the sky and doesn't see anything heavenly

    Back in blighty and waiting to greet the boys is officia-looking (sic) John Harvey.

    The end narrator sounds to me like Michael Goodliffe.

    Sam Kydd is usually listed as being in this film, but I couldn't find him and I would have thought if he was in it, he would have been reasonably prominent.

    Scott Palmer has alerted me to many more of our regulars in the film that I couldn't see in the large crowds. They include Peter Brace, Vic Chapman, Les Crawford, Jack Dearlove, Max Faulkner, Tex Fuller, Ken Hutchins, Ned Lynch, Frank Maher, Dinny and Nosher Powell, Paddy Ryan, Pat Ryan, Arnold Schulkes, Richard Shaw and Fred Woods.

    Great stuff, Gerald. That's a big one I've avoided doing because it's too big!

    I think that would turn into The Longest Post!

    The big extra calls are also on films like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Cromwell and Oliver! and most of our regulars appear to be in those. I need to intersperse large cast productions with smaller efforts if only to keep my sanity.

    Not Walter, I'm afraid, weary. Unfortunately it's not Simon Lack on the list either.

    One last one from The Iron Petticoat. I thought the guards on the plane were some of the same ones from earlier in the film, but looking closer I am certain the guard on the right is Victor Brooks.

    The casino scene in 'Make Mine Mink' (1960)

    Thanks very much Gerald for confirming (over at 'Anyone recognise this actor?') that both Roger Maxwell and Peter Bathurst
    are in this scene. Here is a better shot of most of the actors you saw earlier, including Aileen Lewis (aka 'Mrs. Alexander'):



    With (l-r) John Wilder, Peter Bathurst, Athene Seyler, George Holdcroft maybe? and annoying 'Drunk' Freddie Frinton.


    He follows Miss Seyler to another table, where 'Andy Alston' is one of the gamblers - and John Tatum an observer:



    On Athene's right is uncredited casino manager John Van Eyssen. Am I right in thinking both ladies are/were centurions?

    Amazed by all the sighting on Dunkirk, Graeme, seem to be more britmovie extras on it than the actual engagement..don't think many British extras on Longest Day, Tigon, as interiors and exteriors filmed in France...jws

    It's very like George Holdcroft, cornershop, but I don't think it's him. But just behind John Van Eyssen, I'm pretty sure, is Fred Machon. And yes, I believe both ladies made it!

    From DOCTOR WHO and its 2008 Agatha Christie spoof, "The Unicorn and the Wasp":


    David Tennant, Catherine Tate and Adam Rayner. But the footman is none other than David's dad, Sandy McDonald!

    It's Life with the Lyons (1953), but life can never have been like this (blurred images notwithstanding):


    Hands on the tush, as Mel Brooks might say, and the tush belongs to Barbara Lyon and the hands to Martin Lyder. The short dancer is the Roddy McMillan clone referred to previously. Is it Roddy or not?


    Delivery of a cement mixer does not go down well with Bebe Daniels (Lyon). Nor does the fact Arthur Mullard does not doff his cap


    Blimey, nor does special deliveryman Jim Brady, despite his getting lines.

    More Lyons in their den, this time dans les Frances, in The Lyons in Paris (1954):


    In the opening Marble Arch titles, it looks like at last P.C. Victor Harrington is going to have his own "and" title card . . .


    . . . bugger, no, it's for Bebe Daniels sleepwalking


    Once awake, Bebe astounds Harry the decorator (Bart Allison) and her maid Aggie (Molly Weir)


    She's off to France now with her son Richard and daughter Barbara. The gent braving the English Channel (complete with pipe, though it's hidden in this screencap) is Guy Standeven, who is sitting every even despite the churning waters


    Horace Percival as the impossible Wimple gets into the lobby of a Parisian hotel and the doorman (and in a later scene, cleaner) of l'etablissement is Ned Lynch


    Dance Academy for Bebe and enjoying the fun is a cigarette-puffing Gallic Alf Mangan


    No beard, but a beret for Dido Plumb in the foreground de cette photo


    Babs is feeling a bit frozen now about this Dutch sailor - Otto Friese


    When Wimple and his wife (Gwen Lewis) pull up at this caf�, there's Paddy Smith trying out his best French chat-up lines.
